Visual Signals – #1

Music aside, there’s extra special care taken when selecting an image for SoS mixcasts. Now in it’s second year there’s enough of them to give the images and their creators a special mention.

Olamoszumanska – Foggy Harbour Bridge this morning

A thoroughly haunting image of Sydney Harbour Bridge engulfed in fog. Curved lines and symmetry is poetry in this moment and the looming girder structure in the background just oozes other worldly intimidation.

The size and distance portrayed in this image combined with the perfect combination of colour creates an empty dreamlike experience. The sign, No Turns, placed perfectly, to create an effect of prophecy. Used for the Feburary 2015 Signals of Sound Mixcast – https://soundcloud.com/signalsofsound/sbm-mixcast-feb-2015-enlil-1

BluMarTen – Photo Bomb

An ode to the London Spring time. Rich detailed colour taken of a Pigeon in flight with some nonchalant swans and their ‘ugly ducklings’. This nature is captured against the reflection of the sky on gentle waters and the human angles from the fence, with perfect representation of the North London residential architecture in the background. So much information in this wondrous spring time image. Used for the June 2015 Signals of Sound Mixcast >>> https://soundcloud.com/signalsofsound/sos-mixcast-june-2015

Of all the blue sky and cloud pictures on Instagram Makoto really nails the contrast between brooding clouds and blue skies. Perfectly captures how I feel about the Chezh Rep sky in the capital.

So I should probably include one with an actual Human in it. There’s nothing anybody could say badly about this imaginative hair play. Perfectly off center intrigue as well. Used for the August 2015 Signals of Sound Mixcast – https://soundcloud.com/signalsofsound/sos-mixcast-august-2015

Rearle – Cosmonaut

Used for the July 2015 SoS Mixcast, this image looks impossible and is awe inspiring because of it – https://soundcloud.com/signalsofsound/sos-mixcast-july-2015

The iconic sunrise from Sunandbass – Sardinia, there are only a few that share this memory. Lian_Kunin takes the image, already so weighted with feeling and puts it in the round. For me, symbolising that we can all return next year.

A combination image where I wanted to exaggerate the colours of Autumn. Front cover for the October 2015 mixcast – https://soundcloud.com/signalsofsound/sos-october-2015-v2
